Is Holistic and Natural Health Care Affordable?
As the Founder and Executive Director of The Holistic Chamber of Commerce, this is one of the most frequently asked questions that I hear…
“Can I afford natural and holistic health care?” Sadly, some people aren’t even asking this question… They’re assuming they can’t.
The truth is that these types of preventative health and wellness solutions will often SAVE you money!
Did you know... Sesame Seeds?
Did you know that sesame seeds have been shown to help with Vascular and Respiratory Health as well as Rheumatoid Arthritis? The science behind the suggestion: Because of the amount of manganese and copper in sesame seeds, they are a good source of nutrition for these health concerns and others.

Well, that’s all well and good for you, Camille… But I’m not into that kind of stuff. Really? You’re not? You actually are looking forward to the inevitable if you stay stuck in your current health habits? Do I need to tell you what the obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer statistics are?

Benjamin Franklin & Me
What do I have in common with Benjamin Franklin? I never would’ve guessed this one… He was also a proponent of sound therapy!
Benjamin Franklin, recognized and respected for many prominent activities and inventions, is lesser known as the inventor of the glass 'armonica.’ Not to be confused with the harmonica, Franklin’s armonica is now more commonly known as the bowl organ and is related to ‘singing bowls’ used by sound therapists.
The Super Seven
So what are the super seven complementary and integrative health and wellness techniques? Sometimes known as ‘holistic,’ these techniques often work hand-in-hand with Western allopathic methods for healing illness and recovering from injuries. Other times, they are used on their own as a means of preventing illness in the first place.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by “information overload?” OMG, I do! From home to the office are the traffic lights and the digital billboards cluttering the view; I’ll get home later to see if the DVR did its job. That’ll be good, since my GPS sent me on a wild goose chase today when “she” was recalibrating. My cell phone call (hands-free, of course) was interrupted by a few too many texts and tweets.
The Gap between Talking & Walking
Each January seems to bring new resolutions for most of us. Are you ready to keep them this year? That is, keep them past the first week (or month) of 2011? The best way to do that is to beat the gap between talking your talk and walking your walk!
Now that we’re half-way through the year, it’s time to consider…
According to Jerold Mitchell at WPS Payroll, “There’s not just a gap between talking and walking. There’s a chasm as big as the Grand Canyon.”
